Norma's Funeral and Burial Costs

My best friend that I have known since high school just suffered the loss of his mother. He and his siblings have modest means and have suffered beyond the loss of their mother being thrust into dealing with the shortcomings of healthcare in this country. They cannot afford the exceedingly high cost of funeral and burial costs so I started this GoFundMe effort to reach out to family and friends in hopes the good hearts of all of you will come to their rescue.

Here is a note from Daniel, my best friend who lost his mom. 

My beloved Mother battled Cancer for over a year and lost her fight to pnumonia last night.  She means the world to my siblings and I. We were not prepared for this loss as most of us likely aren't. My siblings and I would like to provide my mother a proper resting place but we simply cannot do it on our own. This is a huge loss to our family and I pray for financial and emotional support from all my loved ones. She is scheduled to be burried on Monday November 20. Thank you all in advance for your help, thoughts, and prayers. 

The goal for this funding effort is after deducting the amount of the funeral costs that the children of the deceased can afford. Please give what you can to help them out. May God bless you in abundance for your assistance.
